Let's say you go all virtual, proxy and more. Let's say you download some files to your desktop. OK, using the example Safari Carpet Bomb as an idea for an up and coming issue no proxy, spyware scanner could save you from what annoying thing can happen. Don't feel bad if you don't understand the exploit in question but I use it as there is nothing absolutely safe.
Is that good enough?
I recently had an incident with a trojan and am getting more aware of
safe hex. Safe Surfing.
I run WinXP with Defender as well as PC Tools Antivirus and Spyware
Doctor. My server offers McAffee and i will probably move over there.
What remains is safe hex.
This question concerns safe hex. I have seen a couple of Virtual
Browsers such as Green Borders and Sandboxie. I have also recently
renewed an old interest in Anonymous Web Proxies like Jaxxax.com.
QUESTION (1): Is there a strong perception that either Virtual
Browsers (Green Borders etc.), or Anonymous Web Proxies are safer,
less penetrable, better in general?;
QUESTION (2): I see that Jaxxax will get me to Google, or Yahoo, etc,
and that such search engines function after being invoked by Jaxxax.
So, if, say, i go to Jaxxax and then to Google, and from Google, I use
Google's search to get me to, say, Fox News, am i still free from
cookies and scripts and so on, when i read on through Fox? I did not
call up Fox from Jaxxax, i went to Fox from the Google browswer--so am
I protected, or out in the wild? Is that Fox viewing totally subject
to every problem that i would have without any AWP?
i hope this can be answered and if I am unclear, i would like to
present more so it can be.
Thanks and Best!
